- Story Text: China said on Friday (June 2) it would stick to its commitment to fight climate change after President Donald Trump said he would withdraw the United States from the landmark 2015 Paris global agreement to curb climate change.
Trump's long-anticipated move on Thursday (June 1) drew anger and condemnation from world leaders and heads of industry. In his speech, Trump, who has called climate change a hoax, complained in particular about China's terms under the agreement?
The U.S. decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord has boosted China's political reputation and diplomatic power, and it could help Beijing achieve long-term ambitions to upgrade its economy and dominate lucrative new industries.
